Q&A: Chocolate “Salad” recipe?

Question by montanalilac: Chocolate “Salad” recipe?
a group of friends is having a Salad potluck for a get-together next week. I’m the unabashed chocoholic of the bunch and am subconsciously expected by them all to somehow make chocolate fit into the theme. Any recipes for layered chocolate dessert (other than pudding with whipped cream) or fruit and chocolate, or, or, or…? BTW, I’m not a fantastic cook, so the easier the better! Thanks!

Arugula & Mango Salad with White Chocolate & Sriracha Vinaigrette

All i can say is that this salad had me at hello… it was impressive in every way. the white chocolate is very subtle and the acidity of the vinegar breaks the cocoa butter perfectly.


1 package baby arugula leaves
1 mango – sliced
1/4 cup cilantro leaves

1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 tablespoon sriracha
1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup grated best quality white chocolate
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper


In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine the sugar, orange juice, sriracha, and white wine vinegar. Stir and bring to a simmer to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat and add the white chocolate, stirring well to melt and incorporate it into the dressing. Set aside and let cool, but do not refrigerate or the chocolate will set and become hard.

Combine the arugula, cilantro, and mango in a salad bowl whisk the olive oil into the white chocolate mixture to incorporate, season with salt and pepper, and toss well.
